BACP service accreditation provides the highest assurances about Quality Management Systems relevant to counselling and psychotherapy. BACP service accreditation has a rigorous application process and has to be renewed every five years, with an annual return thereafter.

Our accreditation has been in place since 2004 and was renewed in 2020 to include the Children and Young People’s Service.
